I don't know the names of specific shelters locally, but can suggest the two resources to contact.

United Way of Warren County is a clearing house for any number of services that may be of help. They would be the best for information about housing. (908) 835-3550

For Veterans issues I would specifically recommend calling the American Legion. I don't know if they can arrange housing options. But they are great for Vets issues in general, particularly health care and social issues. (908) 852-9878

You may want to contact the landlord tenant court and get help from legal services to get a show cause motion to stop the eviction - May buy a month or two.

For immediate assistance you may want to call Reverend Fowler at Trinity Church.

Our family was displaced last October. My husband and I are doing the best we can. We are currently with family but it's getting very difficult. We have 2 kids with special needs. And it's difficult. We would rather be in temporary shelter than in a home with family tgat make everything difficult and have no consideration. Is there a family shelter that would take us all and not just me and my kids? Need help!


Mperez, there were several phone numbers listed above to call for assistance. Try them. If your children are school age, speak to a counselor or social worker. Be kind and helpful to your family. Consider that your situation is causing a great deal of stress for them, as much as they love you. If you need to stay home with your children, your husband should have 3 jobs and be working 7 days. Not kidding. Good luck.


You should get a 1-bedroom apartment on the PA borderline, near exit 4 over that bridge. Living in that area is a lot cheaper than living in Morris County and Warren County, or further eastbound!

If you or your husband are working, you should have no trouble affording a small apt. in Eastern PA.

I would try these numbers:

Bridgeway Homeless Outreach
Jeremy Weeast (Warren County) 732-540-5395

Family Promise - Warren County
908-453-2194

nj211.org is the first call for help, go on-line and see what services are available

Family Promise may be the best option.
